Pensioners’ centre gets refurbished

GA-MOTODI – Pensioners at the dilapidating Bogwasha Elderly Club at Ga-Motodi Village outside Burgersfort within the Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality (FTLM) received blankets and bath soaps as well as paints from Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) Council Speaker’s office.

The office, led by Speaker Maria Manamela, donated 35 blankets, 35x 12 bath soaps for the elderly and 3×20 litres of paint for the refurbishment of the old centre.

The move by the office to reach out to the centre in the rural and mountainous area outside Burgersfort sought to substantiate that the legacy of Nelson Mandela lived beyond the July month, in which it is annually honoured.

Speaking to the elderly during the visit at the centre, Speaker Manamela, appealed to the pensioners to always practice neighbourliness to those they lived closer.

Manamela said it was important for people to always check with their neighbours on how they woke up and find help for them if they were not well.

“This programme seeks to honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela beyond the July Month. This year is dedicated to Charlotte Maxeke, who would have turned 150 years-old if she was still alive. This programme says to us, we must take care and love one another,” said Manamela, who also partook in the repainting of the centre afterwards.

Bogwasha Elderly Club Board Chairperson, Benny Mkhondo, expressed gratitude to the district municipality’s leadership for reaching out to the centre in need.

Mkhondo said that effort by the district municipality showed that its leadership did not only sit in their decorated offices but cared for the pensioners.

Matseke Sekhukhune, a representative from the centre, said they were extremely happy for the donations and the repainting of the centre, efforts of the district municipality.
